A Harrisburg man has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for stealing thousands of dollars worth of postage stamps. The Justice Department says 48-year-old Arthur Gibson was sentenced on February 16th for stealing government property. Gibson previously pled guilty to purchasing thousands of dollars’ worth of postage stamps from post offices in the Middle District of Pennsylvania and elsewhere in July 2019. To purchase the stamps, Gibson used personal checks, knowing that the funds in his bank account were insufficient. Gibson agreed to pay restitution in the amount of $22,990, which represents the value of the postage stamps that were unlawfully obtained.
